About Comfort Keepers

Comfort Keepers® is a leading franchise network in the in-home care market for seniors and other adults needing care. Since its founding in 1998, the network has grown to more than 700 franchised locations around the world by staying true to the founders’ goal of providing quality, caring in-home care services that allow clients the opportunity to age in place. In August of 2009, the brand was strengthened when the franchisor, CK Franchising, Inc. was purchased by Sodexo, a global leader that delivers Quality of Life services to over 75 million consumers in 80 countries each day. In addition to providing services that focus on health care and senior markets, Sodexo’s integrated offerings encompass more than 45 years of experience in reception, safety, maintenance and cleaning, food services, facilities and equipment management, and concierge services

Company History

The Comfort Keepers'® story began in 1997 when Kris Clum, a registered nurse in home healthcare, experienced the need first hand. Sometimes the requests were simple – a loaf of bread or a quart of milk. Sometimes, it was simply a request for a few minutes of conversation to brighten the day.

However, as a nurse, she was only allowed to tend to her patients' "medical" needs. Kris and her entrepreneurial husband, Jerry Clum, Jr., knew they could provide a solution.

Today, that solution is known as Comfort Keepers. Comfort Keepers provides in-home care to thousands of people.

Comfort Keepers now offers in-home care in over 550 franchised offices throughout the United States, Canada, the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and Singapore.

The Comfort Keepers franchise system is comprised of a network of caring individuals committed to providing comforting care solutions. In fact, many of our owners were drawn to this business as a result of their own experiences in caring for a loved one.
